    Hi, I’m new to this posting lark, so if someone could help please? I have a freelander 1 TD4 without the propshaft fitted. It looks like it’s just been removed. Does anyone know if the propshafts are difficult between manual and automatic on the same year of car please? Any help gratefully received!

    No they aren't but either the viscious coupler or the IRD are bad.. otherwise they wouldn't have removed it

    Go and have a look on the Freelander pages, post your question there as they have more experience of this ...

    Thanks for the advice, I’ll get some pictures uploaded soon
    Thanks for that, I know the history of the donor propshaft, and my freelander has a new(ish) gearbox, transfer box and the rear diff is good too. The previous owner removed and disposed of the propshaft due to fuel consumption. So hopefully it’ll all be ok.

    There is no measurable saving of fool on a FL1 when disconnecting drive to the rear wheels. It's a myth.
